When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe the labor that is done on earth—people getting no sleep day or night— then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all their efforts to search it out, no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it. (Ecclesiastes 8:16-17)
God is a God of mystery. His ways seem unclear at times, His methods confusing. We will never fully understand why God does what He does when He does it. It really is not our job to understand. Our job is to believe. Our job is to have faith and continue to walk out that faith in our lives each day. Our job is to live by his word….that beautiful book of instructions He has provided for us. Our job is to share His love with others.
Is this the way of the world? Of course not! The world makes every effort to steer us away from God’s precepts. The world does all it can to fill our minds with sin and regret. The world wants to lead us into darkness and pain.
The world preaches hate….while God’s word preaches love. It is up to each of us to decide which we will follow. Choose to follow God. Choose to live your life for Him. You don’t have to understand all of His plans. You just have to know that His plans are to prosper you and give you hope, not to bring harm upon you. Choose the path that leads to a glorious eternity where it won’t matter how hard you worked or how much you accomplished in this life, it will only matter how you lived it. And the reward will be oh so sweet….eternity with Jesus!
